Z2: Data Management and Data Services (Poster Begutachtung 2013)

According to the DFG proposal guideline 60.06, it is expected that a CRC/TRR has a project section focusing on sustainable data storage and management. The Z2 project facilitates the research within the CRC806 by providing data management infrastructure and services. The data management infrastructure implementation is the CRC806-Database (http://crc806db.uni-koeln.de), which is online since summer 2012. Z2 consults and provides GIS- and remote sensing analyses and the acquisition and preparation of...

CRC806-Database: Implementation of a data management for an interdisciplinary research project

For the data management of the Collaborative Research Centre 806 „Our way to Europe“ (CRC806), funded by the German Research Agency (DFG), at the Universities of Cologne, Bonn and Aachen, the here presented CRC806-Database is in development. Within the 21 sub-projects of the CRC806 about 30 Post-Docs, 60 Ph.D. candidates and more than 100 graduates from the archaeological-, geo- and cultural- sciences working together and producing diverse data, to answer the questions of how modern humans (homo...

Tracing the Influence of Mediterranean Climate on Southeast Europe during the past 350,000 years doi

Loess-palaeosol sequences are valuable archives of past environmental changes. Although regional palaeoclimatic trends and conditions in Southeastern Europe have been inferred from loess sequences, large scale forcing mechanisms responsible for their formation have yet to be determined. Southeastern Europe is a climatically sensitive region, existing under the strong influence of both Mediterranean and continental climates. Establishment of the spatial and temporal evolution and interaction of these...

A Multi-Proxy Analysis of two Loess-Paleosol Sequences in the Northern Harz Foreland

Within the second phase of the “Collaborative Research Centre 806 (CRC806) – Our Way to Europe – Culture - Environment Interaction and Human Mobility in the Late Quaternary” two loess-paleosol sections in the northern Harz foreland are being investigated. The region is part of the Northern European loess belt. The northern edge of the loess distribution is characterized by an interlocking of Weichselian silt and sand sized aeolian sediments. To the south the Northern European loess belt is limited by the...

Umweltbedingungen während des letzten Glaziales im nördlichen Harzvorland

In dem Sonderforschungsbereich 806 (SFB 806) "Unser Weg nach Europa - Interaktion von Um-welt und Homo Sapiens während des letzten Spätglaziales" ist das Teilprojekt D1 "Analyse von Migrationsprozessen bedingt durch Um-weltbedingung zwischen 40.000 und 14.000 Jahren im Rhein-Maas-Gebiet" angesiedelt. Im Zuge des Projektes wurden unter anderem auch Löss-Paläoboden-Sequenzen (LPS) im nördli-chen Harzvorland aufgenommen und analysiert. Hierbei wurden anhand verschiedener geoche-mischer, farblicher und...

Mittelsteinzeitliche Fundkomplexe des 9. Jahrtausends im Bezirk Trier (Rheinland-Pfalz): Chronologischer Kontext, Rohstoffversorgung und Aktivtätsräume doi Spatial

Zusammenfassung ‒ Beruhend auf den Arbeiten von I. Koch und H. Löhr wurde im Rahmen des Projektes D4 des Sonderforschungsbereiches 806 „Our Way to Europe“ an der Universität zu Köln die Erfassung und Auswertung der mesolithischen Fundstellen im Bezirk Trier fortgesetzt. Wichtige Ergebnisse dieser Arbeiten werden hier am Beispiel der Siedlungsplätze aus dem frühen Boreal zusammenfassend dargestellt. Ausgangspunkt dieser Abhandlung ist der Fundplatz „Hüttingen an der Kyll“, der kürzlich auf etwa 8400 Jahren...

Towards a revised stratigraphy for the Middle to Upper Palaeolithic Transition at La Güelga (Narciandi, Asturias, Spain) - Micromorphological investigations and new radiocarbon data

The archaeological sequence of the Palaeolithic site of La Güelga apparently shows an interstratification of Aurignacian between Mousterian and Châtelperronian layers, a sequence which disagrees with the stratigraphic model for the Middle to Upper Palaeolithic transition in SW-Europe. We analyzed the witness section of the interior sector in archaeological zone D using micromorphology and collected new radiocarbon dates for the Aurignacian and presumably Châtelperronian levels in order to provide...

Hassi Berkane, eine neu entdeckte, steinzeitliche Fundstelle im östlichen Rif, Marokko SFB806 doi Spatial

Hassi Berkane (“Wellspring Berkane”) is an Iberomarusian site in the Nador Province in Northeastern Morocco. A thick escargotière visible in construction trenches and underneath the rockshelter on the outskirts of the town was investigated by the team from the CRC 806 in 2014. Profiles in the trench were documented and two boreholes were drilled underneath the rockshelter. The team found lithics and faunal remains in the cores alongside terrestrial snail shell fragments, as well as multiple charcoals taken...

Relating past occupation patterns to (paleo)environmental properties – hypothesis testing

Current archaeological discussions suggest that early human settlement distribution patterns, as preserved by the geological record, may be related to geospatial properties such as altitude, vicinity to water and habitat variability. However, to date, no quantitative analyses have been undertaken to either verify or falsify these hypotheses. In this study, data-driven methods were applied to test these hypotheses, specifically correlation and comparison of dataset variabilities. We compare the standard...

Mesolithic pits in Germany – an initial overview

Inspired by the conference „Creuser au Mésolithique / Digging in the Mesolithic“ in Châlon-en-Champagne in March 2016, the authors start a compilation of Mesolithc pits in Germany. Although it is still incomplete, some statements can be already made. Nearly 80% of the pits known until now come from settlement contexts. The majority was found in sandy soils or flood loams. Although features are known from the Early and the Final Mesolithic, the pits stem mainly from the Middle and the Late Mesolithic. The...

Megabiome changes over the last 120kyr (HadCM3) SFB806 doi Spatial PaleoMaps

This geospatial dataset contains climate data from 120 ka to 0 ka in 1000 to 4000 year steps as raster data. The variable shows biomes representing nine different climate conditions modeled with the HadCM3 - general circulation model. The source data from Hoogakker et al. (2016) was imported from the original published NetCDF file and translated to multiple GEOTIFFs with GDAL. The raster data has been converted to single GeoTIFFs with GDAL’s gdal translate and gdalwarp tool. The dataset has a resolution of...
